Daily Blog — This week in the studio
Some more lions from Foundation classes this week at ActonArt!
In the Charcoal Drawing class at ActonArt, students were super invested in their portraits!
They moved onto a third week to finish them all up.
In this project, students are working on their rendering skills with charcoal.
The Art Year Program finished up it’s first trimester at ActonArt with the conclusion of the Artist Trading Card project!
Finishing up their cards (which you can see varied a lot in style), students then traded around until everyone had a card from every student. Now they’ll have something to remember the class by too!
Our Puffins are puffin’ on out of our Foundation classes at ActonArt!
We’ll see you next week for something new!
Things got… a little weird and collaborative in ActonArt’s Creative Drawing class!
Students were practicing the fine at of the Exquisite Corpse - where one artist draws only a section of the overall drawing… and can’t see what everyone else has drawn! In the end, they unroll the entire drawing to see the weird and wild piece!
This week in the Foundation classes at ActonArt, students are drawing Puffins!
These sea-birds spend most of their life out in the ocean, coming back to find a mate a breed. They can even be spotted here in the US in the state of Maine.
Here we have excellent examples through all our levels from Beginners to Intermediate levels!
In the Manga classes at ActonArt, students were getting super cute with chibis!
Chibi-style drawings are a “cute” style of drawing from Manga and Anime. By distorting the proportions to make them more childlike, it can render even the most serious character super cuddly!
For the final classes of the fall trimester in ActonArt’s Art Year Program, the students were making Artist Trading Cards!
Artist Trading Cards are tiny pieces of original art made to collect and trade! Each student is coming up with a theme and method to create 11 original works - one to keep, and ten to trade with every other student in class! We’ll catch up with them again when they finish the project.
